  • 3 bunches yellow baby beets about 15-20 beets
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • cilantro for garnish optional


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then add the beets. Boil for about 20 minutes, or until you can easily pierce them with a fork.
  • Drain and peel the beets — their skins will slide right off under cool, running water.
  • Cut the beets into quarters and place in a medium bowl.
  • Add the olive oil, vinegar, and cumin to the bowl of beets and stir to coat. Let marinate in fridge for at least two hours.
  • Garnish with cilantro if desired and serve.
